Finally, the world-famous Cristiano Ronaldo bids final adieu to Manchester United by a mutual agreement. A mutual agreement or consent was based on an explosive interview the player gave to a TalkTv show hosted by Piers Morgan.
Later last week, in the TalkTv show channel aired in two parts to be precise, on Wednesday and Thursday, Ronaldo made some serious allegations on the club saying that he felt betrayed and has no respect for the manager Erik Ten Hag.
The issue – Glazers family and Eric Ten Hag
Despite his ups and downs this year, Cristiano Ronaldo gave a blistering interview to Talk TV. His main idea behind giving this interview was to give his take on what is happening in the form of a story. The Portugal superstar during his interview with TalkTv made some serious allegations against his club owners (Manchester United), saying that he doesn’t care about the club. Look at what he said,
“The Glazers, they don’t care about the club …professional sport. As you know, Manchester is a Marketing Club”
He further added,
“The will get money from the marketing, the sport, its, they don’t really care, in my opinion”
Ronaldo said there are things inside the club that are stopping United from competing with their rivals Liverpool.
“People can have their own opinion but they don’t really know what’s going on. For Example, inside the training ground and Carrington or even my life”
Turning down £305m Saudi Arabia move
But on the same show, when asked about the million euro deal with Al Hilal, he said,
“It’s true, yes it’s true, but what the press keep saying, the garbage that nobody wants me, which is completely wrong.
He further added,
“And I was happy here to be honest, I was motivated to do a great season here. But they [the media] continue to repeat that nobody wants Cristiano. How do they not want a player who scored 32 goals last year, with a national team?”
But when Piers asked about why he (Ronaldo) turned down the deal with the Saudis, he said,
“It’s hard, it’s hard. But in the same way, I thought that I was very happy here; that I still capable to score goals.
“I still believe that I can score many, many goals and help the team because I still believe that I’m still good and capable to help the national team – even Manchester United. But if you don’t feel around you that the energy’s on your side, it’s difficult”
Continuous criticism faced by the Media
Further in the interview the player touched on the basis of the rumors spread about him, saying how it feels and how long he expects to play. He revealed some very important things about his future. have a look,
“Of course, the criticism is going to exist all the time, ‘ah he’s 37, he’s not the same’. But I want to see if some guys of my age can maintain the level that I show. Yes, in this moment, I feel very, very good. I believe that I’m going to do an amazing World Cup and I’m prepared, physically and mentally.”
“I want to play two years more, three years more,” said Ronaldo. “So two or three years maximum. I want to finish with 40. I think 40 will be a good age.
“But I don’t know, I don’t know the future. Sometimes you plan one thing for your life and as I told many times, the life is dynamic. And you never know what’s going to happen.”

Based on what the Sky Sports News senior reporter Melissa Reddy said,
“I’m told there wasn’t a payout so United are saving about £16m,”
Cristiano after his departure, made his own statement showing love for Manchester United and fans saying that will never change. He said,
“I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge.
“I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.”
With this both sides said final goodbyes. Now it will be interesting to see which team Ronaldo hooks up with, once the FIFA world Cup ends.
